Jesus was not some sort of whiny wimp who refused to confront the establishment and took comfort in his own righteousness while leaving others to do the heavy lifting. Jesus made people angry, because that’s what happens when you defy bad people. Being a Christian does not mean that you have to shrug and let the likes of Hillary Clinton be elected so she and her minions can fire up her anti-faith pogrom against those of us who dare worship God and not the elite she represents. Maybe you didn’t notice, but they do not accept the concept that we have any legitimate interests or rights. They hate us. And, if we are weak and stupid enough to allow them to take power, they will act on their bigotry and prejudices. Baking cakes is only the start.
Resistance is not merely an option. It is a duty. And resistance to evil – because the desire to suppress our faith is evil – is not somehow unchristian because it can be aesthetically displeasing. Fighting back is not always pretty. Jesus cleared the temple of moneychangers. He made a mess and got people angry. He didn’t sit on the sidelines and write ponderous articles lambasting the people tossing over the tables because “We’re better than that.” …
We don’t care because we are done seeing our morality weaponized against us. The Piouscons keep confusing passivity with morality.
The entire piece is worth your time. Trump has many faults, but it seems pretty clear he is a patriot and someone who desires the restoration of good governance. Despite my initial misgivings about him, I’ll take that over Hillary’s faux-Methodist globalism and personal aggrandizement any day. We are to pray for our leaders, however gifted or flawed they are. Let’s remember that the same God who can use flawed people to achieve His purposes is more than capable of changing those flawed people as well. It’s been a pleasant surprise to see how faithful Trump has been to his campaign promises. How much more of a surprise would it be to find that in seeking to combat the evil in our land, he found the Christ who is best able to defeat it?
Pray hard, Christians!
